[Raging Swan Press] Brethren of the Crimson Altar

By on 22 October 2010

Raging Swan Press have just released Brethren of the Crimson Altar, the third instalment in the Tribes line. Brethren of the Crimson Altar is the longest Tribes supplement to date weighing in at 30-pages of vampiric “goodness.” Ten pages longer than previous entries in the line, a number of pre-generated, fully stated out encounters fill the additional space.

A Pathfinder Roleplaying Game TRIBES supplement by Creighton Broadhurst

Four vampires in the thrall of the Crimson Altar of Kulan-Wyr – an ancient, bloodstained object crafted in the dim prehistory of the world – work to shatter the barrier holding back Death’s legions. Stalking streets and alleyways they prey on the hapless and unwary, spiriting them away to a nameless fortress to die screaming upon the bloodstained rock hewn from the very depths of Hell itself!

Brethren of the Crimson Altar presents 16 stat blocks (ranging in CR from 2 – 15) as well as details of the Crimson Altar of Kulan-Wyr a sentient magic item of great power and terrible purpose. The Brethren include:

Tregereth Faull: LE female human vampire wizard (diviner) 5/loremaster 8
Daveth Goninan: NE male half-orc vampire fighter 10
Margh Vosper: LE male human vampire aristocrat 4/bard 9
Terl Yarg: NE male doppelganger vampire rogue 5/shadowdancer 2

Brethren of the Crimson Altar is compatible with almost any GM’s campaign and can be used in conjunction with The Lonely Coast (a free, 30-page extensively bookmarked campaign setting). Alternatively, a GM can use individual vampires to terrorise his players!

Brethren of the Crimson Altar is available for the great price of $3.99/£2.53 from Paizo.com, RPG Now, RPG Drivethru and Your Games Now

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar “Living” campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave’s first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft).

Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
